Ground source heat pump

ground source heat pump with integrated domestic hot water
Ground source heat pumps work by using heat stored in the ground from the sun's solar radiation to supply all of the energy required for a home's heating and hot water system.

The efficiency of a ground source heat pump is measured in Coefficient of Performance (CoP). This is the ratio of units of heat output for each unit of electricity used to drive the compressor and pump for the ground loop. A CoP of 4 means that for every kilowatt of electricity put in, you get 4 kilowatts of energy in the form of warm water. The flow temperature of the warm water is typically between 35 degrees Centigrade and 45 degrees Centigrade – much lower than achieved by a domestic boiler. The units can reach higher temperatures, but the CoP is then compromised. Keeping the temperature at the lower end of the scale ensures the system operates efficiently.

Nu-Heat can design and supply your heat pump requirement. For further information please make an enquiry.
